Ostara, or Eostre, is the Germanic Goddess of the Dawn who is associated with spring and the Spring Equinox. This connection is made through the early English Christian monk Bede (673 – 735). It is believed that the naming of the Christian holy day, Easter, comes from that source. (John Beckett)

Today, I honor the Spring (Vernal) Equinox with a haiku written from the view outside my window this morning.

Dawn pinked sky glints
over barren tree silhouettes
robin song greets spring
